Restore from backup does not include pppoe settings

  • We are trying to move the router to new hardware and did a full backup.
    When we restore the backup to the new hardware the wan interface shows as pppoe but no pppoe settings are not coming into the settings.  I looked at the backup file and the user name and password are there.
    I can read the user name and it looks like the password is encrypted.

    The password is stored using a reversible hash, not encrypted.

    Are you restoring a 1.2.3 backup to 2.0 or a 2.0 backup?

    When you restore, the whole config comes over, it doesn't pick and choose. If a setting was in a certain place before it should be in the same place after restoring.

    Did you reboot after restoring?

  • The backup was the 2.0 rc.
    We full backup and restore.
    We did reboot after restore.

    Do you want me to see if I can replicate this?

    Yes, if you can reproduce it every time it would be good to know
